Bistro on Rose | Bo Kaap Cape Town Restaurant

Bistro on Rose offers a relaxed scene with a friendly bar menu and signature cocktails. Guests can indulge in Lunch, Brunch and Dinner at the bar, atrium or in banquettes and tables throughout the energetic space. Upbeat lounge music and vibrant tones of orange, pink, lime and aqua underscore the chic and clean design of Cape Town Interior designer Patricia Jackson. An overall air of casual sophistication play host to the guests at this vibrant new neighbourhood café. Bistro on Rose can be; and should be, whatever you need it to be. It’s a casual place, a social place, a place where people come to relax, talk and to eat. A kind of home.

The Food

Our mission: to present unpretentious but utterly delicious food. Share our love for seasonal produce and to provide accessible food with exceptional value.

The menu is a feast for the eyes with wood-fired gourmet pizzas, signature salads, hearty sandwiches, tapas, slow cooked entrées, vegetarian specials and spectacular desserts.

An increased demand in healthy and nutritious cuisine has necessitated that all foods be cooked to order, using fresh ingredients in an uncomplicated and uncompromising way.

The bistro menus are upscale versions of refined French country dishes. They are diverse and ambitious, reflecting the sophistication of a “big-city bistro”. Ingredients from various ethnic markets inspire daily specials

The Bar

35 Cocktail Bar has many facets. By day a pick me up spot for true African Coffee, a decadent thrill with one of our Gourmet Milkshakes, Mocktails and Smoothies or a soothing yet refreshing loose leaf tea experience. By Dusk a place to meet up for a glass of wine, beer or signature cocktail.
